Walk The Estate

What We Offer >> Explore The Estate >> Walk The Estate

From pottering around the castle "policies" (good Scots word) to more strenuous hikes, you don't have to leave the estate, in fact you don't even have to get in the car.

Even a shortish walk on the estate can take in a rich mix of pasture, hill, woodland, coast - the pictures (right) give a flavour: come with us on a virtual walk from the courtyard up Torglass hill, and much more ...

Brief bullet points

  • Kirkmirren Cottage guests have the bonus of the wonderful Screel Hill walk starting from their doorstep!
  • Estate boundaries: don't worry about "going over the edge" - there's no law of trespass in Scotland, and the neighbours are friendly! You don't even need to know where the boundaries are. All that's needed is responsibility, courtesy and common sense, e.g. shut gates, don't let dogs chase sheep, etc.
  • Recommended walks are detailed in our guest information folders (or will be when we finish them!).
